Scots piccies

Lovely work Christian, pikes are very nice, how do you get well fashioned pikehead? I tend to use florist's wire and squash the end between flat nosed pliers and then file it to a point. Bit laborious and only really gives a suggestion of a spearpoint. Your's look very professional. Must say the Robert the Bruce figures are a lot better than the army of Wallace, although I daresay with a good paint job they could be brought to life, but the newer figures produce a really effective looking schiltron and perhaps is reflective of Strelets new policy of giving us more realistic battlefield poses rather than people waving their shields and weapons (and in some cases legs and arms) around in a very odd way for the sake of trying to make every pose recognisably different. So well done to you Christian for the really inspiring work and well done to Strelets for their perceptiveness of market requirements and their constantly improving product.

Thats very authentic good looking leather and metal paints. Nice work Laddie.

And how do you do the grass? It looks authentic....

You are very good Krisztain, thanks for sharing and keep it up my friend!

Re: Re: Re: What paints do you use ?

Hi,

I use grass, which is sold for terrain for model-railway. It is a pice of paper where is glued 'scattered grass'. I glue the paper to a plastic to make stable the base.
I cut the original base of the figures and glue them with rapid glue exactly to the paper after that I make space on the grass.

Hi,


I use Model Master ackryl dark skin colour. After I wash it with Model Master 'Leather' and at least, I paint the nose, top of face and chin with very light skin colour.

Hi,

I paint the metal parts of figures with Model Master 'Methalizer Gun metal' and after I dry-brush with Model Master ackryl 'Silver'.
